Anyone see a bonus offer like this?

So, I got an email today with the following offer:

50k spend by the end of August, 25k point bonus.

THEN

Spend an additional 15k and get 7,500 more points. (Top would be 65K spend for 40k points)

Anyone get anything similar to this in the past? Is this good as far as offers go???

I cannot reconcile the arithmetic.

$50k = 25k bonus
$15k = 7.5k bonus
---------------------
$65k = 32.5k bonus plus base points

Is this for a Business card?

Some high spend offers from previous years:

Targeted: Spend $220,000 from 7/1/15-11/1/15 and get a $500 statement credit

TARGETED: Amex USA up to 50k points for $3-$10k spend on various existing accounts.

Which exact card? (AFAIK, Amex doesn't have a card called exactly Business Blue, and has at least two cards with names resembling that..)

Do you mean the new Blue Business Plus card (that debuted last year), which earns 2x ongoing, or the old Blue for Business card (that stopped taking applications last year), which earned 2x only for the first year?

And what kind of spend have you put on it?
